Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
An Atomic Kyoguchi (Epc. Kyoguchi x C. aurantiaca) that is what this cross reminded me of when the first plants bloomed the flowers shape and substance looked like they were exposed to some sort of atomic radiation! Trick or Treat (L. Icarus x Lc. Chit Chat) produces amazing heads of 15 or more starry orange flowers from vigorous growing plants and has been an important parent. This cross will share many vegetative and floral similarities with Epc. Magic Wand (Epc. Kyoguchi x Lc. Trick or Treat) however we will be expecting these flowers to be larger, fuller, and waxier.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
